TL; DR-I got free dice that my wife loves so much I’m going to buy more!  93%

Basics-Long forgotten lore is appearing across Golarion and you need a nice dice set to face it!  Q-Workshop bring you a new set of dice tailor made for your next Pathfinder game. Let’s take a look at what I think.

Quality-Q-Workshop knows how to make some higher end dice!  These are not a top of the line $50 dice set, but let’s be honest, almost no dice are worth that much unless they are blessed by Gygax himself!  What is here is an amazingly well produced dice set. They feel good to roll, are about the right size, and are a decent cost for what you get. These will cost you a bit more, since they are custom made for the Ruins of Azlant adventure path, but a standard dice set costs $8-$9, and this set retails for about $13.  I would like these dice to be a bit larger as well. I like a bit more heft to my dice, but this isn’t a major problem. Overall, these are a well produced dice set. 4/5

Readability– Ed’s getting old, and if I can’t read a dice face from across the table, that dice goes away in the Royal Crown bags in the depths of my basement.  These faces pop! It’s a nice blue base with a bright yellow color to the faces. I can see what I rolled from three feet away, and that makes me happy!  5/5

Style– The dice faces have more on them than the simple numbers.  I really like the little extra bits and the symbol on the high dice face of each die.  It all looks beautiful and makes me want to use these dice. You’re paying for a bit more for some pretty art, and it does feel like it comes out in the designs.   5/5

Summary-We all start with a simple set of dice.  Basic numbers on a set that get the job done.  Those dice are fine. But, there is NEVER enough dice, and when you can play an adventure path with dice made for that adventure path, it feels amazing!  This is a great set of dice that looks awesome, feels great at the table, and won’t be an eye strain. If you want to be the best looking roller at your Azlant game, this is the place to start.  93%

Extra items- Q-Workshop sent along a few other goodies for me to look over.  One of them is my personal favorite. They sent me a dice that show off all their different designs on d6s.  THIS IS AMAZING! All the different faces look cool, and if you see your new favorite dice design, check out Q-Workshops page and different designs.  Q-Workshop if you are listening, this may be a great thing to consider selling….

They also sent me my wife’s favorite thing-they catalog of dice!  They produce dice for many different systems. What’s awesome here is the sheer variety of different dice and systems they support.  Want to bling out your Arkham Horror game with bless and curse dice? They have them! I don’t know what Polaris is, but I know I’m buying a set and going to get a copy of the game to read about it!  My wife loved the different Pathfinder dice and was picking out new dice as I wrote this review. If you want to check out all the different Q-Workshop dice they sell you can go directly to https://q-workshop.com/en/ I know I’m going to be spending a bit more money to get a few different dice sets.  And bonus, all the things I said above that I can read the dice from far away, they look pretty, and they are a great value look like they apply to all the different dice they sell on the site as well!
